I was looking for a place to stay in the Cruz de Tejeda area and stopped by to check on the prices. The tenant even helped me looking for prices in a town nearby (San Bartolomé de Tarajana) and actually offered me the breakfast for the next day. This is a good gesture I really appreciated. And I'm still thankful... More

Nice familiar hotel, clean, well located to start or finish a hike. Good food with the vegetables from their garden for a good soup, the breakfast is less tasty. Very nice welcoming from the owner which are very attentive

Great place to stay, very friendly owner with a truly personal service. Great food cooked with home grown herds and local meats. The location is also in the perfect place to travel the interior of the island, which is stunning, will recommend to all the people I know

The hotel and the hosts are very charming. You can see amazing sunsets from here. It is located in the geographical centre of the island and therefor the perfect starting point for hikes and other parts of the island are easy to reach.

Traditional country hotel right up at the pass at Cruz de Tejeda, a confluence of some of the highest and loveliest walks on Gran Canaria. We had a cosy but spacious room with a heater (needed at 2,500 feet up, even in March). Excellent buffet breakfast and the inexpensive dinner was 3 courses (no menu choices) of delicious home cooking... More

We stayed here for two nights while walking on Gran Canaria. A lovely little hotel in pretty Cruz de Tejeda. We ate one night in the Refugio, everything home made with soup for starter, a choice of chicken or fish for mains and a choice of 4 desserts all washed down with a lovely bottle of red wine chosen by...

Definitely one of the best places we've ever stayed in - set in a beautiful place and cozy. Very helpful and friendly owners and simple yet delicious food - this is a great hotel to spend some time in the mountains, explore the inner part of the island and simply enjoy the peace and beauty of the surroundings.

But nog expecting the roof that low that my partner (1.90) could not stand right up in the room, the narrow bathroom.

Cruz de Tejeda is a great base for walking in the magnificent mountains in the centre of Gran Canaria. It is a stunning area. So it’s a pity that El Refugio isn’t a little bit better than it is. It doesn’t pretend to be a smart hotel – and it certainly isn’t. Our room, and particularly the bathroom, could have... More
